What is the diopter adjustment range? The listed specs just states "yes" and the DX ED model says -3 to +3.
Asked by: Barb
They do not state a numeric value for the diopter. It is adjustable but just + or - with no numbers.

Would these binoculars survive if they are fully submerged?
Asked by: Aghy
It depends on depth and duration. It would probably survive a very brief and shallow dunking. But unless they rate it for immersion, you have to assume water would enter.

Why does it say "close-to-midrange observations"? Does it mean that it is not recommended for infinity focus (e.g. stars)?
Asked by: Arash
The Nature DX 8x42 binocular's near focus is 6.5 ft (2 m) which is ideal for bird watching. While it can focus at infinity and be used for stargazing, larger aperture binoculars with higher magnification would be better suited.

question

How does the Celestron Lifetime Warranty compare to the Carson or Vortex No Questions... type warranty?
Asked by: Kenneth A.
The Celestron Warranty is a Limited Lifetime. So it only covers against defects. The No Questions asked warranty from Carson and Vortex cover against accidental damage, as well as Manufacturer Defects.

question

Does a carry case and strap come with the binoculars?
Asked by: Nancy L
Yes. Great binoculars. I would invest in a more comfortable neck strap though or even a harness depending on what you plan to be doing with them.
